2022 Adult Summer Reading

2022 Summer Reading

You can discover Oceans of Possibilities at the library!

Our 2022 Summer Reading Program is now finished! Prize winners have been contacted, please check your voicemail if we didn't reach you directly! Visit the front desk at the library to pick up your prize(s).

Please note that Beanstack, prize drawings, and registered events are for Nesmith Library cardholders only: all are welcome to attend our non-registered events and to visit the library! If you live in Windham (or work for the town or schools) and don't yet have a library card, stop by to sign up for free!

How to Participate: For Adults

  • Register!
    • Register on Beanstack (in your browser or download the app). You will need an email and password, and select the challenge best suited to your age group.
      • Caregivers can sign up children as readers under a single account (and also participate in Adult Summer Reading themselves!)
      • If you have used Beanstack with us in a prior summer or during 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, you will use the same log in and select this summer's challenge to get started.
    • If you prefer not to use Beanstack to track your reading digitally, you can visit the front desk at the library to register on our paper list, and fill out raffle entry slips as you read books this summer, and place them in our raffle baskets. We will draw winners at the end of the summer from everyone who participates, whether on paper or online!
  • Read!
    • Log your reading using Beanstack (in your browser or download the app), or filling out paper raffle tickets each time you visit the library.
    • Want some suggestions? Request a Mystery Bag and a librarian will put together items for you!
  • Attend Nesmith Library events:
  • Use raffle tickets in Beanstack to enter our prize drawings:
    • You will earn tickets as you log your reading on Beanstack, and then you can apply those challenge rewards to prize drawings!
    • If you prefer to fill out paper raffle tickets as you read, you can visit the front desk and place them in the raffle basket you wish to win!
    • Winners will be drawn from the pool of all of our participants, on paper and online. Winners will be notified at the end of the summer.
Beanstack, our in-person registered events, and our raffle prize drawings are for Windham residents only. All are welcome to register for our Virtual programs on Zoom.
